Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. This tissue can grow in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, the lining of the pelvis, and other areas.
The symptoms of endometriosis can vary depending on the severity of the condition and the location of the tissue. Some common symptoms include:
Symptoms: The symptoms of endometriosis can vary in severity and may come and go. Some women with endometriosis have no symptoms at all. The most common symptoms include:
Painful periods (dysmenorrhea): This is the most common symptom of endometriosis. The pain can be severe and can start before or during the menstrual period and can last for several days.
Pain with intercourse (dyspareunia): This pain can occur during or after intercourse.
Pain during bowel movements or urination: This pain can occur during or around the time of your menstrual period.
Heavy menstrual bleeding: This is when you bleed more than usual during your period.
Fatigue: This is feeling tired or worn out.
Bloating: This is feeling full or swollen.
Nausea: This is feeling sick to your stomach.
Infertility: This is difficulty getting pregnant.
Diagnosis: There is no single test that can definitively diagnose endometriosis. However, your doctor may be able to diagnose endometriosis based on your symptoms, a physical exam, and imaging tests such as an ultrasound or MRI.
There is no cure for endometriosis in conventional medicine. But there are treatments that can help relieve symptoms and improve quality of life. Treatment options include:
Pain medication: Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or naproxen can help relieve mild to moderate pain. Prescription pain medications may be necessary for more severe pain.
Hormonal therapy: Hormonal therapy can help reduce the amount of tissue that grows outside of the uterus. This can help relieve pain and improve fertility.
Surgery: Surgery may be used to remove tissue that is causing pain or to improve fertility.
